I don't normally reply before reading the whole thread and i'm not American. But this same
old rhetoric keeps getting churned up, so here goes my 2 pence worth.
# 1...A slave is owned
and only gets their keep and shelter (standards of both by
virtue of their owner
# 2...A servant (worker) is paid
for the service they provide - and if they don't like
the conditions they are free
to take their service's elsewhere. So that makes them
and the sole judge of their own
value!! ie. the better their work is the more
they can demand!
When I was 18 years old there were NO
safety nets like there are today. If you left or lost
your job you were penniless!
...And when I was 14 years old and ill I could hear my parents
discussing whether to call out the Dr., as every
visit and call out had to be paid for.
I have read many threads of this nature on ATS and I have come to the conclusion that we
have an 'entitlement' generation, who the more they get the more 'entitled' they become.
Who ever said Life was fair?? It's not.....Get used to it.
And if you don't like it.....Do
something about it yourself!!!
